Gluten Free Almond Roca

I wish I could photograph the crunch and the sweet toffee goodness of this almond roca – not to mention the buttery caramel scent of my kitchen at the moment! This candy is easy to make – it takes about an hour – and tastes like the real thing. You can add chocolate if you want, but we like it just like this!

slow cooker roast beef – makes an amazing gf beef dip!

slow cooker roast beefOne day when Geoff and I were out for dinner, the waitress walked by our table with an amazing looking beef dip. Geoff instantly wanted one so a few days later we decided to try to tackle a gluten free version. The resulting recipe is one of our favorites. The roast is really good on its own – nicely browned and full of beef flavour – and the jus is salty and savory with just the right amount of spice. For a beef dip, we use Udi’s baguettes. The crust is a bit hard for dipping and eating, so we pour the jus over the sandwich and eat it with a knife and fork. It’s one of the best beef dips we’ve ever had.

gluten free and dairy free sandwich bread – it’s awesome!

gluten free sandwich bread

We love our crusty breads but we have been searching for a really great recipe for gf sandwich bread. Then Geoff’s massage therapist – the BEST massage therapist – told him about this recipe she’d found on the Gluten Free Real Food website. IT IS FANTASTIC! The crust is crusty but not hard and the crumb is soft and malleable with lots of good air pockets. It produces a good size loaf (bigger than our old bakery wheat bread), slices thin or thick, freezes well and can be lightly thawed in the microwave. Oh, and it tastes great too – sweet, salty, and a bit nutty. As for shelf life, it’s still good on day two and just starts to lose its flavour and fluff on day three – not bad for a no preservative bread of any kind!
